From the desk of Steve Shultz:
From the time I first heard about the prophetic, I became quite familiar with Bob Jones. I've done conferences with him. He's one of those, when he talks, I REALLY LISTEN! I HIGHLY recommend Bob and his wife Bonnie.
We pray THE ELIJAH LIST encourages you. The Elijah List is a FOR-PROFIT ministry so any gift in Money or "in-kind" (such as a car), will NOT be tax-deductible. Even Jesus took donations but had to pay taxes on what He received. I truly believe God will bless you if you bless us. Donate online at: https://www.elijahlist.com/donations/donation.php. We thank YOU, our dear readers, for blessing us with your generosity.
God is Going to Shake the Devil Out of the Church
Below are excerpts from Bob Jones, given just a few days before Rosh Hashanah in September 2011. You can view this word in its entirety on YouTube, just click here.
A few days ago the Lord began to deal with me on a thing.
The angel of this nation is called "Unity," or "Union." If you study George Washington's prophecy, you see that this is the angel that appeared to him in his darkest hour. And there were some miraculous things that took place with George Washington. His enemies in battle began to believe that he couldn't be killed because they would shoot at him, they would shoot the horses out from underneath him, everything else, but he had a Divine hand on him. I believe that Divine hand is coming again to America, and America is being called to come into a union. There is coming a civil war in the Church, and each and every one of you are going to have a civil war inside of you. It is going to be the gray matter, the rebel, against the blue, the revelation of the Son of Heaven. We have tried to bring a unity in our minds for a few hundred years in America. There has not been any unity. There can only be a unity when we become united in the Spirit.
A "Gold Mind"
If anybody says something in church that offends you, you are going to blow them off, but God is calling for the mind to become a gold mind, and being offended is not a thing that is an option to you. A gold mind is going to have what a person needs when they need it.
A gold mind is a mind that has settled their affection on things above, not on things on the earth (see Colossians 3:2); so our soul (mind) has enslaved our spirit, but it was never meant to be that way. You don't worship the Lord in your soul, you worship Him in spirit and in truth. So, you are going to have to worship Him in the spirit to get the truth. We have been trying to do it here (mind), when this (mind) should be our servant and this (spirit) should be the master, for the revelation gifts are in every one of your spirits.
The soul has been the master too long, and the rebel is in the soul, and the rebellion, and the gray matter. You are not going to be able to figure out what to do in the future. You are not going to get the answers you need in your mind. The answer is in you, but it is in your "spirit man." The "spirit man" is the same in men and women alike; the spirit of a woman is a "spirit man." And this is what He is beginning to heal, that you would literally become love slaves, that the mind would become a love slave to the Spirit of God that's within you. Every one of you, when you were born, a piece of God the Father came out at your conception. When you were conceived you were conceived to live forever, and you are going to live forever someplace, and you determine where you are going to live.
Healings and the Word of Wisdom
When that seed in you gets ready to break forth is when you begin to seek Christ. You will seek Him first in the written Word, but it is time now that we go on; the Word is there, but let the Spirit of God come into us so the Holy Spirit can reveal to our spirit the future. And then when this (mind) becomes the love slave, it does only that which you hear here (spirit). And when you use the name of Jesus you hear it here (spirit), and when you bring the word of knowledge, then there will be tremendous release of healings.
We are on the verge of awesome healings, but there is something that is greater than healings. The word of knowledge is really good, it is not going to stop, but we are getting ready for the word of wisdom. The word of wisdom will come to not only prepare you for the future and tell you the future, but it will tell you how to avoid needing to be healed. The wisdom of God is getting ready to be released, and you will know what decisions to make for the future, what you should be saving and what you shouldn't, where you should be. So, He is looking for a person (people) that will let the word of wisdom come and dwell here (spirit). I have seen very little of the word of wisdom; I have seen it but a few times. But we are getting ready for it to be released. With that, there will not only be the miraculous healings, there will be the miracles. I've seen strokes and things like that healed, but with the word of wisdom you know how to stay healed. You know what decisions to make for tomorrow.
An Army in Unity
There is a remnant of people who are getting ready to come forth like love slaves. Their ear will be tuned to the Master. One of the things God was dealing with me on this morning was How much do you want to pray in the Spirit? We pray in understanding a lot, don't we? But praying in the Spirit is where you hear. Paul was a brilliant man and, you know, he prayed in the spirit more than anybody else. He didn't get it in his mind, he got it here (spirit).
So, the civil war is getting ready to start, and we are getting ready for it; the gray has got to surrender to the blue. This gray matter, you think you've got a thing figured out, but you don't. You are going to have to "faith it out," and you only faith it out right down here (spirit). Faith is coming forth. So, every one of you are going to have a civil war within here (spirit). You are going to have to determine, Am I going to figure it out? Well, I am telling you, you are not. Should I buy gold? Should I buy silver? Should I buy food? That's all gray matter. It isn't going to work. But, when you pray and you hear something here (spirit), do that. That is going to work.
Well, this time I'm going to put on the blue, and so are you if you are going to go anyplace. And when you put on the blue, you become an army – an army in unity. Do you have any idea what an army in unity can do? You know, there are principalities and powers throughout the dominion, demonic that are reigning over this town. You know what an army of blue would do? We'd pull down that principality. One of you can't do it, a hundred of you can't do it, a thousand of you can't do it, but several churches joining together in unity can take down the enemy. He is calling for us to become an army that stays in step with one another, that doesn't go AWOL or get out of step, marching together in unity – and that's going to be by the Spirit. The word of knowledge and the word of wisdom are getting ready to come into each and every one of your spirits.
When a man like me brings a word, you ought to know whether it is the Lord or not because you already are getting it for yourself. One thing that I have noticed that Bonnie and I are doing lately, when we are bringing the revelation, it is only bringing a confirmation of what people already have, and then we can become in agreement with one another. And that's what He said, that we would become in agreement with one another – an army that marches by revelation, revelation of the Son of Heaven.
You are getting ready for the created like you have never seen before. I believe I have seen created body parts on the inside, but I have never seen one on the outside. I believe the reason He did that is because people weren't ready for it. But I think that there is a hunger and a thirst for people now for the real thing. And when what's in the Father's heart is in the Holy Spirit's heart, and the Holy Spirit is right there in your spirit, your spirit is your conscience, and when your conscience feels something and reveals it to your mind, your mind's job is to proclaim it and speak it into existence.
Wisdom Has Come to Kiss Her Children
This is in Isaiah 48:6-7: It will be called into being by the word of prophecy. I believe that we have come to an end of religion, three days ago on Rosh Hashanah, and the beginning of Christianity.
Isaiah 48:6-7 You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known. They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, "Behold, I knew them!"
I believe wisdom is going to justify her children, and she is looking for her children to step forth; and what she speaks in here (spirit), with their soul they will proclaim it and bring it into being. We have come to end of one time and the beginning of the next. I believe the Lord has been preparing us in a strong way for the last three years. This is the year of the man, 2012. This is the year that godly wisdom is returning to the Body of Christ, which works by the fear of the Lord returning. I believe that we have come to that place of realizing that we don't know anything, and when we use the name of Jesus and we use it from here (spirit), there is not any demonic force that can stop it; you can literally tear the gates off of a town.
I believe that there is a remnant that He is calling forth. I don't believe they are very mature yet, but they are going to change. The change is taking place, and there has been a preparation in the last three years. I am afraid that a lot of heresy has entered into the Body of Christ and the truth is getting ready to reveal it. I mean, I see all kinds of heresy, like, "God don't heal anymore," and all this other kind of stuff. We are getting ready to find out what God does do. We have been seeing what He doesn't do. We are getting ready, through His wisdom, to find out what He is going to do and who is He going to do it through. If He was going to do it Himself, He'd already have done it. He is going to do it through you if you become that servant, that slave, and you spend that time in the Spirit, and you hear what He is saying in the Spirit, and you worship Him in the Spirit; and as you worship Him in the Spirit, it creates a truth in you. We are getting ready for the truth.
Bonnie was given the 85th Psalm the other day. Truth is going to rise up from the earth and righteousness is going to come down and kiss it. And I'm telling you, wisdom has come to kiss her children and to justify them. I would put it this way: You haven't seen anything yet. Where two of these come together in agreement, here the Lord is in your midst to accomplish what you are praying. I believe we are getting ready to honor the Father on a level like never before. For that's what the Father seeks – those that will grow up and begin to look like His Son. His Son did nothing but what He saw the Father do. That's what He is calling you to do; if you would do nothing but what you saw the Father do, then you would do all things.
God's Government is Coming Up
Get ready, because in the last few years in the Shepherd's Rod, the beginning was the ox, which was the servant, the sacrifice; the year after that, 2009 and 2010, was the year of the eagle, which was revelation; we have just come through the year of the lion authority; now, get ready for the man to take all of these and begin to walk it out over the earth. So, 2012 is the year the man comes forth, and we need to begin to ask for the nations. Ask in the spirit, because the Holy Spirit is going to release people to go to nations you never thought you would be receiving.
The remnant is coming forth. First, it is just going to be a remnant. It is going to be Isaiah 11:11 again, and He has been speaking this to us since 1999: A remnant coming forth. Well, a remnant is going to be a guide for the rest of the Body of Christ. Once you begin to walk that Spirit trail and you begin to obey the things of God, instead of there being one Jesus down here, there will be thousands, and they will be called to do the things that He did, and they will only be called to do that which they hear here (spirit), and have trained their mind to proclaim it. Now, you still need to train the mind, for a slave needs to know how to please the master. So, there is a real need to get into the Word and to know the Word. But it is still law until you hear from the Spirit, so the religious spirit, which is legalism, opinion, debate, judgment, and criticism, is coming down and in its place will be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers.
God's government is coming up, and this is the year it begins. This is going to be a year of the best of times for those who walk this way; the worst of the times is trying to figure out what to do. You don't have to figure out anything. You are not going to be able to. He is waiting for sons and daughters to talk to Him so He can reveal the future to you. One of the first things He will tell you is, "Quit looking back, you don't have any past." Look to today and tomorrow. Rejoice in your past that has got you where you are today, but look to what He says for you to do today.
If He is not telling you to do anything, then you've got a day off. But if He begins to impress you to do some things, then be quick to hear and quick to obey as a slave would to a master. I will tell you something about this love slave. You know who the closest to the master is? The love slave. He is right there next to him. The love slave sometimes is just watching the master's eyes and the master's eyes will tell him exactly what to do. The master's hands will tell him what to do. He can feel what's in the master's heart and he goes and does it.
It is the time that we begin to move in the Holy Spirit of God. It is time that we learn from the Apostle Paul, probably the most brilliant man in Scripture; but he couldn't do it on his own, he had to go into the desert and lose his mind to find it. We are getting ready for our minds to be blown and become a gold mine. Once you become a gold mine, whatever is needed, whatever counsel there is in you – really, the Holy Spirit is in you. How many gifts are in Him? The same amount of gifts that are in Him, when you received Him, are in you. So, if you are going to ask for gifts, ask for all of them. But, right now what we need the most is the word of wisdom. And it is going to come, it is already coming.
And the signs and the wonders... I saw some things recently. There is a great joy in Heaven right now, because the Father has whispered a thing into the Son's ear, and Jesus doesn't keep secrets. You may not understand that, but He doesn't keep secrets. He has told everybody in Heaven what is getting ready to happen, and Heaven is getting ready to touch Earth, and He has told them, "I am getting ready to do some of the greatest healings you have ever seen. I'm getting ready to release the word of knowledge in a way you have never seen before. But I am also getting ready to release the word of wisdom to where you don't get sick anymore, to where you know what to do, to where you know where to do it."
Wisdom is on her way. I believe it has started. Come back to Him in the Spirit. Come back and let the Holy Spirit speak into your "spirit man." Let the Holy Spirit reveal into your conscience where you are missing God. One of the next things I believe is getting ready to take place is repentance on a scale like you have never known before; and it is going to be the very best that is going to be the repenting, because we have been letting the "gray" reign over the "blue." We are going to need to give up the authority of the gray and let the Holy Spirit become the Lord that reveals this, because He is part of the Lord. He is the only God down here, and that is what He is calling us to: that we would come and begin to obey Him. You don't lose any battles then, and you are sure not going to lose any war.
The Harvest Begins
I believe we are in a key time in history, and this preparation of the man going forth is the beginning of the harvest. I believe that this is the year that the harvest begins, and I don't know to what extent, but I do know this: It is going to really escalate by the year 2015, and I know that what He is talking about in this one harvest, He is talking about over a billion youth getting ready to come in. They will only come in to where wisdom dwells.
Wisdom is looking for a place to move in down here now, and she is coming down here to take over the Father's business; and where Wisdom is reigning over the Father's business, we are talking big numbers, and we are also talking about going worldwide. So, this is the year that our feet should be prepared and shod with the preparation of the Gospel, that the Holy Spirit would direct our feet into the places He wants us to walk and would begin to reveal the true hope to people that have none.
Brokenness without understanding brings hopelessness. Brokenness with understanding brings hopefulness. So, what I am trying to say to you, get ready to get broken here (mind), that the mind surrenders and obeys what the Holy Spirit is saying for you to do in here (spirit); and it is going to bring a fullness, and those out there that don't have hope, they don't realize it, but you are their hope. The mind without an anchor in these coming days is going to be insanity, but the mind with an anchor of hope is like a ship that goes out to sea when a hurricane is coming. They let that anchor down and the anchor just lifts it up and down over the waves. But if it stays ashore, then the hurricane will just take it and destroy it – and there are all kinds of perfect storms headed our way.
They have been telling you that it is all over. Well, it is not all over. The shaking is yet to come, and what He wants to do is shake the devil out of the Church to where the Holy Spirit reigns over it, and when the Holy Spirit reigns over you there is not going to be anything to reach out and grab you because that wisdom is going to have you in a place of protection and a place of hope. Hope is a confident expectation in God that will not be let loose. The anchor will hold, so we need to anchor our soul, tie it down, and really let our "spirit man" go, our conscience, and let the Holy Spirit reveal the heart of the Father in us, and we need to go forth shedding the love of God, shed it abroad into people's hearts.
Get Ready for What You Have Waited For
So, it is a different season. I have known for many years that 2012 was a time to live for. So, you in the Church, get ready for what you have waited for. For you it is the best of times. You are not going to starve. I mean, Scripture says that! You are not going to be blown away. It is a time of brokenness. So, what's going on first is the Church is going to come into a time of brokenness so it can be brought into a time of fullness. Get ready for the fullness to begin this year. Seek Wisdom, knock on her door and you will find her. It begins with being awed by God, or the fear of the Lord, or better – let's say you let your conscience tell you what to do. Your conscience does guide you. It is the part of the Father's heart that is in you, and you know when you are doing right and you know when you are doing wrong. So, repent for what you have done wrong so that you can do what's right. Get ready to be led by and worship the Father in spirit and in truth, and subdue the gray matter to slavery and the blue to the Master.
So, I believe we are in a very, very key time now, and it is the time that we seek Him; so if there is anything I would say to you, seek Him. Find out what He wants you to do. Don't let men tell you what to do, let the Holy Spirit of God tell you what to do; and the first thing He will tell you is worship Him, His Spirit, so that He can reveal the truth to you. And truth will be your guide. So, we are in a very key time, but I think we are in one of the greatest seasons that has ever been. Some are going to shake that don't know Christ, but you that do know Him, you are going to be shaking to where you can come right to Him.
